About Habitat for Humanity of Beaver County

 

Habitat for Humanity of Beaver County has been putting faith into action in our community since the spring of 1992, partnering with hard-working individuals, families, and volunteers to build homes. Our affiliate was organized by the Men’s Club of the Conway Presbyterian Church in Conway, PA. We have provided homes for 56 families throughout Beaver County and, by means of our tithe to Habitat for Humanity International, we have built over 65 homes outside of the US. Our Mission is to eliminate poverty housing by empowering people to change their lives. In addition, we serve our community by increasing our county’s yearly tax revenue by $95,000 through rehabbing blighted houses or building on vacant lots.

Habitat for Humanity International

 

Habitat for Humanity is an international, nonprofit housing organization thar has operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat is a proven model successfully enabling more than 1,000,000 people worldwide to move from inadequate shelter into simple, decent homes.  Habitat for Humanity International is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with hard-working families in need.

With more than 1,700 Habitat for Humanity affiliates at work in the United States, Habitat has helped change the lives of over 30,000 American families since its first U.S. affiliate was founded in 1976. Habitat affiliates build in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each Habitat affiliate is an independent, locally managed organization which coordinates local construction and selects partner families without regard to race, religion or ethnic group. As an affiliate, we tithe 10 percent of all unrestricted operating revenue for the year to Habitat for Humanity International in order to eliminate poverty housing around the world. As a result; collectively, we are responsible for building more than 600,000 homes in 100 countries.

Local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build and renovate houses in partnership with hard-working people in need, and then sell the houses to the homeowner partners. Homeowners are selected by local affiliates based on their need for housing, ability to repay a no-profit mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat. Mortgage payments contribute to a Fund for Humanity, which in turn provides the money to build more houses. Because of Habitat's no-interest, no-profit loans, and because the houses are principally built with volunteer labor, mortgage payments are affordable for low-income partners.
